Is it really a sign, when you keep bumping into one person you are least expecting to see again. The first time Sally meets Harry, she finds him obnoxious, impossible and eccentric.

Benjamin and Andie weren’t ready for actually falling in love with each other. They wanted to prove a point when they get involved with each other. But between all the planning and thinking, things take a different turn and they actually fall for each other. It’s a fun movie to watch and it proves that love is beyond anyone, even the level headed and career oriented Benjamin and Andie.
4. While You Were Sleeping
Cast: Sandra Bullock, Bill Pullman
Google Users Rating: https://g.co/kgs/LwzVWL
Trailer on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjcLQ4r8jIU
It’s funny how sometimes we think we want somebody till we finally bump into somebody else that we are truly made for. Lucy likes Peter, and she magically (almost) ends up with him. Soon after, her path collides with Jack’s and they fall in love after a series of encounters. Alert: This story does not have any love triangles. It’s a real treat for rom-com lovers, and I can vouch for it that you will end up wanting a love story like that.
5. Confessions Of a Shopaholic
Cast: Hugh Dancy, Isla Fisher
Google Users Rating: https://g.co/kgs/ePBRKn
Trailer on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fphOZcMzjBk
Opposites attract, right? Not really. The core values need to be alike. Rebecca and Luke are deep down sensitive, kind-hearted and people of integrity. But that’s it, in every other sense they are poles apart. This movie is sweet, funny and no doubt makes it to the top movies to watch with your special someone.
Cast: Julia Roberts, Richard Gere

Trailer on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wzii8IuL8lk
Well, this one’s got an unusual story. A chivalrous middle-aged guy named Edward meets a gorgeous young woman named Vivian, and they ultimately end up falling for each other. That is there. But, ordinarily, you wouldn’t expect a boy and a girl to meet like this in a rom-com. This movie makes me believe in the impossible. Really, love just finds a way!
7. Just Like Heaven
Cast: Reese Witherspoon. Mark Ruffalo
Google Users Rating: https://g.co/kgs/9aJZMD
Trailer on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPyJTNzziz
David and Elizabeth create one beautiful love story and an unusual one too. While David is confused and taken aback when he meets the spirit of Elizabeth, he eventually helps her get back to life (literally and metaphorically). It’s not as complicated as you might think it is. It’s a sweet rom-com and Dave and Elizabeth will stay with you for a long time to come.
8. 50 First Dates
Cast: Drew Barrymore, Adam Sandler
Google Users Rating: https://g.co/kgs/T1Yh1W
Trailer on YouTube:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1SVxJZTgI4
This is a unique romantic comedy. Henry is a quintessential playboy and has no intention of settling down with anyone. But then, he meets Lucy who faces an unusual medical condition of short-term memory. Henry, unfazed by it, chooses to stay in love with her. Its a sweet, funny and fascinating story of Henry and his 50 “first dates” with Lucy, few of which went really bad. Love like this, who wouldn’t want it!
9. My Big Fat Greek Wedding
Cast: Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, Michael Constantine
Google Users Rating: https://g.co/kgs/zSSxoV
Trailer on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgiFy52mrDY
Toula has been an awkward woman most of her life. Eventually, she decides to get hold of things and feel better about herself. She ends up meeting the guy she had a thing for when he was a customer at her restaurant, and ultimately, they both find love in each other. However, this is just a beginning. Families and religions pitch in, however, thankfully, love survives it all. The story and characters are much relatable. The movie is funny, sweet and gentle and a must watch for all rom-com lovers.
10. 10 Things I Hate About You
Cast: Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles, Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Google Users Rating: https://g.co/kgs/8pucU1
Trailer on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWmjzCZr0Jw
The movie is quirky, funny and hits the mark when it comes to making a perfect young people rom-com. Kat is sharp, sarcastic and doesn’t take a crap. It takes a right guy to see what lies beneath is a funny, caring and sensitive girl. I think the movie further made me appreciate the fact that it doesn’t take two perfect people to make a perfect relationship, instead what is needed is two imperfect people, perfectly fitting for each other.
11. 27 Dresses
Cast: Katherine Heigl, James Mardsen
Google Users Rating: https://g.co/kgs/f1zXLT
Trailer on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VV1-pePln_I
It’s a story of how two nice people bump into each other, have a good time, fall in love, get separated due to misunderstandings but finally end up together. It was soul-satisfying to watch Jane and Kevin who go through all that and create heart-warming moments and a rom-com to remember.
12. What Happens In Vegas
Cast: Cameron Diaz, Ashton Kutcher
Google Users Rating: https://g.co/kgs/bSZxHe
Trailer on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjtr1bNapKg
Joy was feeling lost and drained, but now with Jack in her life, she has no time to sulk. They had a happening night at Vegas and found themselves married the next day. No, it wasn’t love-at-first-sight. Instead, they hated each other’s guts. But, they can’t get divorced before 6 months. Stuck with each other, Jack and Joy eventually move from hate to like to love relationship. Joy unknowingly brought out the man in Jack, while Jack helped Joy find herself back. A perfect love story, I must say. And it’s funny as hell.
13. The Ugly Truth
Cast: Katherine Heigl, Gerard Butler
Google Users Rating: https://g.co/kgs/XkoJb3
Trailer on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8RBuo7ycy0
Abby has a checklist for a guy she’d like to date. Mike has his peculiar, yet possibly accurate theories about relationships. It is a (un)match made in heaven. Abby and Mike get into a deal where Mike is supposed to help Abby win over a ‘perfect’ guy. However, along the way, they fall in love with each other. This is one of those romantic comedies that make you crave for more romantic comedies.
14. Letters To Juliet
Cast: Amanda Seyfried, Gael García Bernal, Vanessa Redgrave
Google Users Rating: https://g.co/kgs/E7nJ3o
Trailer on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBZzC-iVCTo
It’s one of my favorite rom-com movies. It’s got a beautiful, smart girl and a charming, high-headed (just on the outside) prince trying to help long lost lovers get together. They travel through towns together in their quest and all the while end up discovering each other as their soul mates. I watched it a couple of months ago and couldn’t believe I missed out on this heart-warming romantic comedy all these years.
15. Silver Linings Playbook

Love does not always come easy. Sometimes, it involves getting totally nerve-wracked by the people you meet before the right one. Pat and Tiffany both have their own emotional situation going on for them. They unwillingly get involved with each other. Finally, they end up realizing how perfect they are together. Miss this movie at your own peril.

If it’s meant to be it will be. That is what Sara tells Jonathan. They meet serendipitously, hit it off right away, but Sara not being sure asks Jonathan to leave their story on destiny. Jonathan unwillingly agrees but ends up regretting as soon as they part ways. I, for one, absolutely believe that two people meant to be together are connected by an invisible chord. Do you think so too? Well, you’ll at least give it a thought after watching the movie!

Well, it all started with a well-meaning partnership between Alex and Sophie. Sophie helped Alex write a song, while Alex helped Sophie to get better of her past.
